Gifts from a Special Friend

My friend Arcadia in France made me the loveliest sewing basket with a matching tape measure for Christmas. I absolutely love the little flower buttons that the girl is holding. Arcadia also spoiled me with two stitching books and the beautiful lace handkerchief which she had a friend purchase for her in Belgium. I am so grateful to have received such intricate and beautiful gifts. I apologize for waiting so long to post this! I got caught up in all the excitement from all the holidays.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and catching up on what's new here. Keep on stitching and enjoy every day.

Frosty Friends Exchange for Leena

I received a copy of the book Country by Helen Wind from my friend Arcadia . I chose to stitch a snowman from it for Leena for the SBEBB's Frosty Friends exchange. I was fortunate to have purchased a grab bag of linen cuts with this pretty blue one in the mix. I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for this frosty gentleman.
